Kognitio Builds and Manages a 1.5TB Data Warehouse for Kelkoo via Data Warehousing as a Service

Originally published April 2, 2009

Kognitio, a global provider of business intelligence and data warehousing solutions, has announced that the company has built and is managing a 1.5TB data warehouse for Kelkoo via Data Warehousing as a Service (DaaS). Kognitio is complementing its DaaS service with ongoing consultancy in order to help Kelkoo maximize the use and exploitation of information within its business. Founded in 2000, Kelkoo is Europe's largest e–commerce website after Amazon and Ebay, and the largest e–commerce advertising and price comparison platform in Europe.

DaaS is helping Kelkoo to improve efficiencies within its organization, speed up access to business data and increase the visibility of key metrics to the organization. The service is also making the data more accessible to front–line business users, who can turn it into intelligence in order to make more strategic decisions and drive the company forward.

Kelkoo chose Kognitio’s DaaS because it offers the speed, scalability and flexibility of Kognitio’s WX2 analytical database without the burdens and costs associated with a traditional in–house deployment and management model. DaaS gives Kelkoo the ability to focus on getting insight and results rather than be distracted by managing the data warehousing capability themselves.

“We wanted to connect our various legacy data sources together and give our business teams direct access to that data,” said Lyndon Hearn, Director of Business Intelligence at Kelkoo. “However, we did not want to get distracted from our business goals by implementing the infrastructure ourselves. Kognitio’s DaaS offering was the perfect solution; by outsourcing the data warehouse, we are not tied up with infrastructure management and platform development, and can focus on using the insight the service gives us to make our business more efficient and formulate strategies for the future.
